We stayed at the above named hotel for 14 days. There is nothing to criticise about this place. The staff were wonderful, could not do enough for you, everyone from the grounds people to the top bosses were very friendly etcetera. There was a wide choice of food every meal time, so even a fussy eater like me never went... More

Just got back from a two week stay at the Riu MoBay with my other half. Lots of our family members and friends have stayed here over the years and reading the bad reviews on here didn't stop us from booking. The staff at the hotel are great, so good. Once we checked in (after receiving a rum cocktail on... More

Stayed for 3 nights in October. Check in was smooth (although very hot) and the room was excellent. Bar and mini fridge well stocked , room safe good, and overall very clean with good air conditioning. Food was ample and varied in the 3 restaurants I used. Unable to try the steak restaurant as it was fully booked for all... More

And I don't mean that in a good way! My husband and I spent our anniversary in Montego Bay this year. We stayed at the Riu Palace next door (adult only) but had complete access to both within the compound (lol totally was fenced off with guards!) We only went over a few times but it was not a great... More

Just arrived back from rui montego bay . My first time in Jamaica , this is the worst rui I have ever stayed in..we chose this hotel firstly because it was short transfer time ( as we were travelling with elderly parents) and secondly because it was a rui hotel..big mistake! Expected aircraft noise that wasn't a problem, but this... More

I will caveat this by saying that I am not generally a fan of all-inclusives, but was put up here on a business trip because most other properties were under construction or unavailable at the time. I am aware that they provide a certain value and a certain type of vacation for a subset of the population, but I really... More

All I ask for is a clean place to eat, sleep, and relax. This wasn’t it. But I can understand why people choose to stay here - it's cheap. I found that in Jamaica, you truly do get what you pay for. I stayed 3 nights at the RIU for a wedding and couldn’t wait to check out. This resort... More

Similar to other holiday-goers, I was hesitant about this resort because of other reviews but this is a really nice hotel with great staff and facilities. If you have booked you are not going to be unhappy. Its a really nice place. Yes, you can comment about certain improvements but this is a really nice resort and you can have... More
